Editorial Reviews

Review

A worthwhile addition to the core texts in the field of medical humanities. It is a valuable guide for teaching medical ethics and is worthy of a sequel.

(JAMA)

Should serve as a resource not only for teachers of bioethics courses but also for those engaged in understanding the relationship of the humanities to medicine and to bioethics... In addition, the book may prompt serious discussion of popular films that address complex topics and stories that have bioethical implications.

(Jeremy Sugarman Science)

Stimulating... each chapter has discussion questions that could be used equally well in the classroom or after watching a film at home with friends.

(James Paul Triple Helix)

The twenty-one essays, together with an excellent introduction by Shapshay, are a welcome addition to the bioethics literature, making up for some of the deficiencies of the usual case studies found in most bioethics text books. Most of the major distinctions, problems, and arguments which make up the field of bioethics are presented in uniformly well written essays typically focusing on a single film. Each essay is accompanied by study questions and excellent bibliographies.

(Metapsychology)

Bioethics at the Movies is a groundbreaking work that will enhance the teaching of bioethics in the humanities as well as in medical, nursing, and allied health.

(Thomas R. Cole, University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston)
